Django Bates - Summer Fruits (And Unrest) (1993)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A Darker Shade Of Blue

This recording, for me, brings to mind the music of Henry Threadgill (for all its twists and turns and stops and starts, as well as all it’s humour) and Charles Mingus (for its sense of controlled anarchy – one gets the feeling that the center might let go at any time). It’s definitely a wild ride…

AMG Review
by Stephen Cook
After working with both the experimental big band Loose Tubes and the likes of George Russell and Bill Bruford, pianist Django Bates started plying his own eclectic and dense take on jazz, with several solo outings on independent labels. This 1992 release marked the beginning of fruitful, yet somewhat brief stay at the German JMT label. In line with the controlled chaos and cerebral approach of produced by labelmates like Tim Berne, Summer Fruits ably displays Bates‘ mastery of both combo and big band writing on a series of layered charts, which not only take in Russell‘s and Gil Evans‘ architectonic arrangements, but free jazz and neo-bop as well; while his Human Chain group handles the combo selection, the large Delightful Precipice band work through the big band pieces. Shot full of breezy humor — while also falling prey to the needless clutter so popular in fusion bands and jazz schools — Summer Fruits will no doubt please fans who like their swing embedded in left field, yet logical dress.

Enjoy!
